Highs & Lows
Having a whole little island to ourselves for one afternoon in Montenegro!
Being sick in Skopje while staying in a weird hostel with probably the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept in...
Q & A
What would you have changed?
Like I already mentioned in my report on the first part of our trip, it would have been nice to have a little bit more time at each location. Looking back, I feel like we rushed a bit from place to place and we could have taken more out of our trip if we'd stayed a little longer at each location. But we wanted to see as much as possible in a fixed amount of time so I guess that is the trade-off...
Anything go wrong during the trip?
I caught a cold in Skopje and it was a bit sad to be sick during the last few days of our trip. On the other side, though, it caused me to be excited for going home to my own bed.
What tips would you give a friend?
Definitely spend a bit more time researching hostels and reading the reviews. Most of the time, we just booked the cheapest option and after the two bad nights in Skopje I wished we would have invested a bit more money for a nicer hostel...
The usual stuff? I would say you don't need anything special during this trip.
From city to city I would recommend taking the bus, it's easy and cheap. Within a city, taxis are a good option and usually quite cheap as well.
